Brother MW-260 mobile printer

Brother makes a few superthin mobile thermal printers, including the top-of-the-line MW-260, which retails for $500.

According to Brother: "The MW-260 delivers up to three postcard-size monochrome prints per minute at an easy-to-read resolution of 300 dpi. The MW-260 uses Thermal Transfer Technology, so there are no ink cartridges or ribbons to change. It accommodates 4.1x5.8-inch/A6 size paper, which is loaded into the device via a 50-sheet capacity autofeed cassette and delivers professional-looking, cut-sheet documents."

Canon Pixma MX7600

Canon's Pixma MX7600's got a bit more design flair than your average all-in-one inkjet.

Editor Justin Yu's bottom line:

"The Canon Pixma MX7600 multifunction is a huge improvement over the previous model. With additional features such as an autoduplexer, increased faxing options, and an upgraded control cockpit, we have no problem recommending the MX7600."

Dell PZ310 Wasabi mobile printer

Dell's $99 Wasabi mobile printers use Polaroid's "zero ink" technology called Zink. Instead of buying ink, you buy special Zink photo paper that will run you around $10 for 30 sheets.

The user reviews haven't been too great for this one, but it sure looks fetching from the outside (alas, looks can be deceiving).

HP Envy 100

Editor Justin Yu's bottom line on the HP Envy 100:

"Boasting a touch-screen display, an app store, and ePrint (a remote printing service), the HP Envy 100 features loads of innovation in a slickly designed chassis. We wouldn't buy this printer for its image quality, but the convenience of ePrint and the potential of the ePrintCenter app store earn the HP Envy 100 our recommendation."

HP Photosmart eStation C510

You might have heard about a printer that comes with its own detachable Android-powered tablet (the Zeen). HP's C510 is it.

Editor Justin Yu liked its Web-connectivity features, but wasn't so keen on some other issues. Here's what he has to say in his bottom line (the price has dropped since he wrote the review):

"For all the cool points the HP Photosmart eStation C510 earns for Web-connectivity features like ePrint and the detachable Android-powered Zeen, we're holding off on our recommendation until HP drops the price and fixes the user interface bugs and network errors that marred our testing."

Kodak ESP 9250

The Kodak ESP 9250 ($249.99) was on the bubble, but we decided to include it because it's got some curb appeal. Not a ton, but some.

Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer
